A few days ago, the internet was abuzz with rumours that Kareena Kapoor is doing a sizzling item song with the Tamil superstar Suriya in his film entitled Anjaan.
The story, that went viral in no time, also had the film's director Linguswamy being quoted as saying that this would be Kareena's entry into Tamil cinema.
Reacting sharply to the story the actress says, "I don't know where such baseless stories come from. I haven't signed any such film. I don't even know who Suriya and Linguswamy are. I've never seen them. I've zero interest in acting in non-Hindi films whether it is down South or in Hollywood."
Kareena says it's her career policy to not do films in a language she doesn't speak or understand. "How can I emote in a language that I don't know? I was offered beautiful scripts by the late Rituparno Ghosh in Bengali. I never could bring myself to work with this brilliant filmmaker because of the language barrier, and now he is gone."
The actress says she has turned down some of the biggest South Indian films throughout her career. "I love the work being done in South Indian languages so in Marathi and Bengali. But I'll have to learn these languages to act in them."
She also refutes any interest in doing item songs in any language. "Even in Gabbar, the number is a guest appearance and a romantic song. And I did it for my friend Shabina Khan who is the film's co-producer."
